Not unlike American lawyers, have U.S. physicians become a profound embarrassment and disappointment?

Have American physicians become a gene pool-diluted embarrassment and disappointment?

Not unlike lawyers, medical doctors (MDs) are (1) very important--and probably more so than lawyers--in the overall scheme of things but (2) certainly no longer among the brightest bulbs our higher education system produces. In recent years, doctors not only let themselves be bullied by insurers but worst of all let patient care and patient service wane. Care and service is now a cruel, comical heartless ruse.

Anyone agree that American doctors have lost their way?
